Twisted Automotive, best known for their bespoke Land Rover Defender vehicles have applied their expertise to the Suzuki Jimny.
Modified Suzuki Jimny
The modified Suzuki Jimny from the renowned UK experts at Twisted Automotive promises to deliver more power, more luxury, and more fun for those who dare to be different. These anti-ordinary Jimnys are designed for anti-ordinary people, and Twisted has gone the extra mile to ensure they live up to their reputation.
Twisted Automotive’s founder commented, “It was so important to ensure we adhered to our Twisted ethos with this brilliant little 4×4. Our focus therefore has been on power, handling, and refinement. The transformation from the original vehicles is absolutely astounding. We have engaged with engineers in Dubai, Japan, and the UK to bring together a completed product that still feels like a Jimny but with attitude and refinement. It’s faster, quieter, safer, and so much cooler.”
The Jimny by Twisted experience is all about taking the beloved 4×4 to new heights. The modifications have dramatically reduced the 0-60 time, making it quieter, quicker, and more sure-footed than ever before. Twisted Jimny feels much more solid and composed, handling like a much bigger vehicle. Despite its enhanced capabilities, it retains the Jimny’s compact size, making it easy to park in tight spaces while offering a full load space for dogs, tools, or adventure gear.
The base specification for a Jimny by Twisted build includes a range of enhancements:
ECU & Turbo installation to boost power to 165hp.
Twisted Performance Suspension System for improved handling.
Twisted Rear Anti-Roll Bar for enhanced stability.
Twisted Jimny 16” Alloy Wheels finished in satin black.
BFGoodrich 16” All-Terrain 215 Tires for off-road prowess.
Body Colour Wing Mirrors and Front Grille for a unique look.
Twisted Hip Stripe and Exterior Plaque for added style.
Optional Mid-Line Down Soundproofing for a quieter ride.
Twisted Leather Trim to Front Seats, Door Handles, Steering Wheel, Gear Levers, Handbrake, and Centre Console.
Twisted Soft Touch to Dial Surrounds and Dashboard Vent Rings.
Twisted Audio Upgrade with Double Din Infotainment featuring Carplay, DAB, and Bluetooth.
The million Rand Jimny
One unique feature of Twisted Jimny is that all UK-supplied pre-registered vehicles are sold as commercial vehicles, making them fully VAT reclaimable. This makes them an attractive option for businesses, as they can benefit from capital allowances and super low benefit in kind, similar to the iconic Defender. Prices for these remarkable vehicles start from £49,500 plus VAT. At current exchange rates the cost will be well into a million rand for this Jimny, however with the popularity of the Jimny in South Africa, what price do you put on an better version?
Twisted takes pride in the craftsmanship that goes into every Jimny modification. Whether customers are modifying their own Jimny or choosing one of Twisted’s delivery mileage base vehicles for a custom build, they can rest assured that one technician will be dedicated to their project from start to finish. Each Twisted Jimny, whether a base build or a custom commission, proudly sports a unique build plaque, showcasing it as a genuine Jimny by Twisted. Conversion plaques will also be applied to customer-supplied vehicles.
In the world of Twisted Jimny, their goal is simple: to create something that brings a smile to your face the moment you take the wheel. Adventure awaits for those who seek the extraordinary, and Twisted Automotive is the place to help you embark on that journey given their range of products.
